Facial Slimming Injections
Here at Face Hub Facial Aesthetics, we believe that botulinum toxin has many different cosmetic benefits as we do not only use dermal filler for reducing wrinkles. It can also be used to achieve the appearance of a slimmer face. This can be done by injecting dermal filler into the masseter muscles which lie at the back of the jaw and can sometimes cause the face to look square. When a person chews or grinds their teeth at night which is known as bruxism, these muscles can become larger. When Botulinum toxin is injected into these muscles it causes less activity in the jaw which can have a slimming effect on the contour of the face.
If you are interested in the idea of having the procedure of face slimming you will first get a free consultation with one of our expert and friendly practitioners who will go through all the information about the procedure and assess if you are a good candidate. Once this is all clear, a treatment plan will be specified for you. The areas around the face will be marked precisely and a topical numbing cream will be applied 15 minutes before the treatment begins. Dermal filler will then be carefully injected into these targeted sites on the lower part of the face. The procedure usually takes no more than 30 minutes and there is little to no recovery time. Patients may be asked to avoid certain things straight after the treatment such as touching or rubbing the area, lying down, exercising, leaning down or taking anti-inflammatory medication or alcohol.
Clients will usually have minor swelling or bruising for the first few days but that will then fade. The final results can be seen about 2 to 5 days after treatment and will usually last about 3 to 6 months so to keep the face appearing slim it is recommended to get top ups 2 to 3 times a year.
Facial Slimming is a good option for clients who:
- Have a strong bite muscle
- A jawline that is not obscured by heavy lower cheeks
- Suffer with TMJ
- Want their face appear less square
